Round 2 of the Dragon Force 65 Sunday Championship Series took place on Sunday 15th October 2017 on what was a warm partially cloudy day. The wind was primarily from the south at 10 – 12 mph gusting to 14 mph occasionally. All skippers started on A sails and remained on these throughout the day.
The course was a triangle and sausage in the middle of the lake, starting between marks 7 and 8, a beat to 12, downwind to 8, a reach to 7, beat to 12, downwind to 8, and finish between 12 and the bank.
Chris Aldred suffered a leak which caused him to retire after race 6, whilst John Newton had a snapped main sheet whilst leading race 5 necessitating him miss race 6 as well. Congratulations to George Patten on his first win with the Dragon Force 65, with our newest member, Geoff Howell, also having a first place, as well as Keith Gray. Despite a few bad starts, John Newton was able to recover to take first place on the day with 23 points, followed by Dave Bland who continues to improve in second on 32 points. Rodney Latham was third, also on 32 points but only had one win compared to Dave.
With Angela Mears, Glenn Meekcoms and Dennis Graham missing todays racing this now leaves Dave Bland leading the Dragon Force 65 Sunday Championship series with 20 points, followed by Keith Gray on 16 points and James Beale third on 15 points.
